A look back at 2009 in film!

Having already mentioned what a huge year 2009 is for Let’s Go To The Movies, formed in the February to be exact. That was therefore a massive year in terms of reviews for 2009 films, catching as many as I possibly could at the cinema and then reviewing them. Something I have grown to love over the past decade!

I don’t feel as though this was really an outstanding decade in terms of films and/or performances but we certainly were given plenty of entertainment. The 3D film was pushed a lot and in a few different ways which is something that Avatar really was groundbreaking with, however after ten years maybe that film was more of a gimmick than actually an amazing film? I certainly think so.

Oscars: My Favorite Hosts

Something that everyone always talks about when it comes to the Oscars is who the host or hosts are. It seems to be important to really get the viewer engaged from the opening monologue. I will admit that in terms of watching the Oscars I am pretty new at it. I guess I have this blog to thank for that as probably 2009 was when I started paying more attention to it. The reason? Well because I had started watching more films, and seen a lot that had been nominated.

Therefore my favourite Oscar hosts are from the more recent years, I just thought I had to set that straight before people asked why I had not mentioned some of the older ones.

I thought I would start by mentioning Chris Rock who had the pleasure of hosting this years Oscars. His opening monologue well pretty much poked fun at everyone addressing the Oscars so white situation which had been brewing since the nominations came out. He was as everyone expected in all honesty.
